UDL Guidelines 2.0 The goal of education in the 21st century is not simply the mastery of content knowledge or use of new technologies. It is the mastery of the learning process. Education should help turn novice learners into expert learners—individuals who want to learn, who know how to learn strategically, and who, in their own highly individual and flexible ways, are well prepared for a lifetime of learning.
European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System This article is about ECTS-credits. For information about the ECTS grading system, see ECTS grading scale. European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a standard for comparing the study attainment and performance of students of higher education across the European Union and other collaborating European countries. The Open Classroom Like automotive models, women’s hemlines, and children’s toys, pedagogical fads come and go, causing an immediate stir but rarely influencing teaching practice in any significant way. The notion that every innovation dreamed up by reformers inside and outside public schools makes its way into the nation’s classrooms is popular among those hunting for reasons to malign the schools. But it is crucial to distinguish between mere intellectual chatter and ideas that provoke substantive change. Where on this spectrum does the idea of the “open classroom” lie? At first glance, it would seem to be just another fad.
Universal Design for Learning - The ACCESS Project - Colorado State University The Best Practices through UDL video features faculty and students at Colorado State University discussing the benefits of UDL. Additional captioned formats are available, along with a transcript that includes descriptive audio. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles and techniques for creating inclusive classroom instruction and accessible course materials. At its core is the assertion that all students benefit when they are given multiples ways to take in new information, express their comprehension, and become engaged in learning. = New in 2012 = Updated in 2012 The Three Principles Three primary principles, which are based on neuroscience research, guide UDL and provide the underlying framework for the Guidelines: Principle I: Provide Multiple Means of Representation (the “what” of learning) Learners differ in the ways that they perceive and comprehend information that is presented to them.
Accelerated Learning Template and Methods In The World Rapid learning is a skill that can be acquired by anyone. Likewise being highly efficient and productive is also a skill and lifestyle habit that can be learned and integrated in one’s life. Let’s talk about productivity first before we get into the world of #MetaLearning. Understanding Efficiency vs. Effectiveness EffectivenessÂ is getting greater or equal output for a given input.Â Efficiency is having a superior process so that for a given input the output is always exponentially greater.
5 Elements that Make Your eLearning Courses Effective The objective of an eLearning course is to provide an engaging learning experience to the end user. There are certain elements that make e-learning truly interactive. Let’s take a look at some of them: Learning Objects: Learning objects are all those elements that help create the learning material of a course.

Videos/Animation: Videos complement the learning that takes place in an online course and breaks the monotony of assimilating large content.
The Importance of Universal Design for Learning When a student struggles in the classroom, questions usually focus on the student: Does she have a learning disability? Is this student's reading skill not on par with the other children in the class? Does he not pay enough attention when sitting in class or doing homework? Until recently, there has been comparatively little focus on the role of the curriculum in these struggles. Thanks to work by Harvard Graduate School of Education Lecturer David Rose, the chief education officer of the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST), researchers and educators alike are now examining how the curriculum, not the student, may be disabled, and how curriculum disabilities can be overcome.

Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a scientifically valid framework that provides multiple means of access, assessment, and engagement and removes barriers in instruction to achieve academic and behavioral success for all. The Universal Design for Learning framework can provide educators with a structure to develop their instruction to meet the wide range of diversity among all learners. Universal Design for Learning is based on brain research that suggests a one-size-fits-all approach to education is not effective. The inspiration behind Universal Design for Learning was the concept of universal design in architecture, where design features intended for individuals with disabilities have had unexpected benefits for the general population (e.g. curb cut outs designed for wheelchair access have benefits for strollers, rolling luggage, skateboarders, etc.) There are three main principles of Universal Design for Learning: 1.
